OOTD + FOTD + Haul

This is my first ever attempt at wearing a maxi dress! I love them, even though it was a few cm's too long and I had to keep it hitched most of the day with my hand, but they're really comfortable and you don't have to worry about the wind lifting your dress up or anything!
I took my FOTD at the end of the day (4pm) and my hair went crazy cos the wind, but I didn't really do much at the start of the day with it anyway! I literally woke up and shoved it in a crocodile clip :)

Bourjois 10 hour sleep affect foundation
this is a sheer foundation to me, and I don't usually wear sheer foundations or TMs, but my skin was behaving itself today!
I got my hair done the other day (though you can't tell because my hair is so dirty! I haven't washed it since I got it done on Tuesday.. It is currently Friday.. hahaha ewww I know! Anyway, Sarah at If The Shoe Fits... has wonderful, shiney, healthy blah blah blah blonde hair, and she uses the John Freida shampoo and conditioners to maintain it, I'm not sure if I bought the same ones as her (there's like a few different blonde shampoo/conditioners to choose from in the range!) but I bought:
I haven't used them yet (haven't washed my hair duhh) but I've been smelling them non-stop!! They smell gorgeous, like salon brand type scent.. Really nice, and I'm sure once I'm using them just the smell will make me think I'm doing something good for my hair haha They were about $15 each from Woolworths, which is kinda expensive for supermarket shamp/conds!

I also went into Kmart today to buy The Hills Season Five Part 1 on dvd for $19, but they had sold out! After a day! So frustrating!
So I went to JB Hi-Fi instead, and bought it for $25 :)
So excited to watch it!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Jordy's Beauty Spot said...

I am sure they meant well :)Recently there just hasn't been any amazing beauty product to talk about so i get what your saying.
Your so gorgeous in a maxi dress!!!
The Hills is one of my fave tv shows but pretty sure the new season doesnt even have lauren in it. The whole season 6 was just about weird!!

Oh you look soo S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G!!! That maxi dress looks so gorgeous and so dressy too! Haha I know what you mean I am too short for them too, I wore one the other night and had to actually hold it up like I was stepping in puddles whilst I was walking, how shameful!!

Ohh yay that's the exact ones that I have been using, they smell just gorgeous I know!!! : )

I am indeed in England ;p UK! Ive never heard of a brand called Cotton on but we have a company called Cotton Traders but they just sell random plain t-shirts lol x

In regards to your blog comment, yeah people give away stuff for free on the vogue forums! theres a thread called 'free for all' and people give away unwanted just pay for postage!
do you go on the forums at all? i think you'd love it there!

You look lovely in the maxi.
I wanna try wearing one but coz I'm short, I dunno if it'll look good? Lol xxx

You look great even with your hair like that! I wish I can do that...if I wake up without straightening my hair...I look like a lioness!

Re your comment on my blog, I have my current hair extensions in for about 8 months already! I am thinking of getting them off...but then I remember the last time I took my last extensions off...I felt so weird with short hair that I went to get extensions again within the same month!

For The Fierce said...

Your eyes are sooo pretty, & I need to get myself a maxi dress... & bring it to the tailor 'cause I'm waaaay short lol said...

You pull off the maxi dress! Very uhh Angelina Jolie? Haha .. I am so envious of your skin, it's so lovely !
Care to do a skin care routine?


Gaby said...

I've never understand all the hype about maxi dresses. I think they don't flatter anyone (unless you cinch them with a belt, like you did). I prefer little summer dresses (=

Caitlin said...

You look wonderful in the maxi dress- you really pull it off well! I'm super short so I could never wear one though :/ ! & you have the most gorgeous eyes, i'm so jealous of them! They're such a pretty sky blue.

I love the hills! So bummed about heidi's surgery though, she doesn't even look like herself anymore!

LOVE THE hills!!! can't wait to see your review on the shamps and conditioner! x

Karen said...

You have great skin Lorien - I wish I could get away with only sheer foundations or tinted moisturizers :\
And the maxi dress looks great on you although I'm sooo short I can't even think of wearing a maxi dress. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't work for me LOL.
John Frieda has some good products - I love their freeze ease serum. I've tried their brunette shampoo but it didn't do anything for me so I didn't repurchase it :\
